The Summit High School Alpine ski team had their last home meet of the season Friday, Feb. 4, when the team competed in a grand slalom race at Keystone Resort.

The team was without several of their athletes as many chose to compete for their club Alpine ski teams at another Alpine race.

The Tigers that did compete at Keystone Resort did not disappoint though as both the girls and boys teams were able to place individuals within the top five.



Junior Michael Cheek led the boys team as he finished within the top three, notching a third-place finish in a combined time of 1:26.84. Cheek’s fastest run of the day was on his first run when he completed the course in 42.82 seconds.

On the girls side, sophomore Luci Brady was the front runner for the Tigers as she placed third overall with a combined time of 1:29.91 and a top run time of 44.64 seconds on her first run of the day. Brady was followed by star freshman Kristiana Stoyanova in fifth with a combined time of 1:31.58.

Additionally, Victoria Uglyar finished in eighth, Lucia Hoffman in 21st and Sadie Slahetka in 25th.
